📒Is It Worth Dying For ✍ Robert S. Eliot
📝Is It Worth Dying For Book Synopsis : A groundbreaking examination of stress and its effects on health and disease Cardiologist Robert S. Eliot identifies “hot reactors”—apparently healthy people who overreact to such common occurrences as losing a tennis game or missing a train. If you are a “hot reactor,” you may be responding to stress with an all-out physical effort that is taking a heavy toll on your health . . . without your even being aware of it. Based on more than twenty years of research with thousands of patients, Is it Worth Dying For? takes stress management out of pop psychology and puts it into mainstream medicine. Dr. Eliot identifies the ways in which stress affects the heart, the blood vessels, and the body and gives us new, objective ways of detecting stress before any damage is done. He offers a complete program for recognizing, reducing, and reversing the hidden effects of stress in your life—to make stress work for you, not against you. You’ll learn: • How to take your own “stress temperature” (the results may surprise you) • Whether you are a “hot” or “cold” reactor • How to relieve work-related stress • How to reduce your dependency on alcohol, drugs, and tobacco • How to keep your sense of control and self-mastery in practically any situation • Plus a complete stress-reducing nutrition plan; relaxation therapy techniques; and a twenty-minute-per day, three-day-per-week aerobic fitness program to strengthen your heart
📒A Life Worth Dying For ✍ Jim Mandelin
📝A Life Worth Dying For Book Synopsis : A Life Worth Dying For: The Jim Mandelin Story, by Jim Mandelin with Don Rock and Alison Diesvelt, is the true story of a man, who endured a childhood strewn with daily incidents of sexual, physical and emotional abuse at home, and constant bullying at school; who survived years as a youth on the streets succumbing to the predations of pedophiles and to addiction; who did multiple stints in prison and was eventually recruited by a biker gang in prison for work as a 'debt collector on the outside'; who eventually became a physical wreck because of addiction, facing cardiac arrest at twenty-two and a near-death experience that changed his life forever. A Life Worth Dying For is woven with fleeting moments of kindness by relative strangers, which ultimately fused Jim with the will to live. This is a story written to raise awareness of the effects of childhood abuse and neglect, bullying and discrimination and how these circumstances so often create conditioning for criminality and gang membership. It is a real-life testament intended to deepen your understanding of what it is to be human, and of the power of kindness to affect critical change in our world.

📒A Life Worth Living A Cause Worth Dying For ✍ Richard A. Lotspeich
📝A Life Worth Living A Cause Worth Dying For Book Synopsis : In America today, somewhere between 80 to 90 percent of adults claim to be Christian. However, when asked specific, detailed questions about the essential tenets of the faith, only 8 to 9 percent actually hold a biblical Christian worldview. The rest are cultural Christians whose faith is shaped more by the American culture than an actual understanding of the teachings of Jesus. I was once one of those cultural Christians until I was challenged to read the Bible and see for myself what it really says about following Jesus. This book is the result of that effort.
📒Worth Dying For ✍ Rorke Denver
📝Worth Dying For Book Synopsis : In a fast-paced and action-packed narrative, Navy SEAL commander Rorke Denver tackles the questions that have emerged about America’s past decade at war—from what makes a hero to why we fight and what it does to us. Heroes are not always the guys who jump on grenades. Sometimes, they are the snipers who decide to hold their fire, the wounded operators who find fresh ways to contribute, or the wives who keep the families together back home. Even a SEAL commander—especially a SEAL commander—knows that. But what’s a hero, really? What do we have a right to expect from our heroes? How should we hold them accountable? Amid all the loose talk of heroes, these questions are seldom asked. As a SEAL commander, Rorke Denver is uniquely qualified to answer questions about what makes a hero or a leader, why men kill, how best to serve your country, how battlefield experiences can elevate us, and most important, why we fight and what it does for and to us. And in Worth Dying For, Denver shares his personal experiences from the forefront of war today. Denver applies some of his SEAL sense to nine big-picture, news-driven questions of war and peace, in a way that appeals to all sides of the public conversation. By broadening the issues, sharing his insights, and achieving what civilian political leaders have been utterly unable to, Denver eloquently shares answers to America’s most burning questions about war, heroism, and what it all means for America’s future.

📒Is It Worth Dying For Behavioral Health Education ✍ Barbara Ann Udell
📝Is it Worth Dying For Behavioral Health Education Book Synopsis : Behavioral Health Education addresses the epidemic levels of unhealthy lifestyles in the United States. the consequences of these unhealthy behaviors can lead to chronic illnesses such as coronary heart disease, diabetes, obesity, hypertension, and other related diseases. I was the Associate Producer of a videotaped investigation of persons participating in a 2-week residential health and wellness program. I selected portions of the total raw footage of the videotapes from this Social Action project to serve as a catalyst for lifestyle changes for both participants and viewers. I am submitting these portions of the videotapes, which portions I refer to as the "video," to accompany my contextual essay. My belief, as was Albert Bandura's (1969), is that people can change their lifestyle habits by observing and modeling others. the participants have learned how to have a healthier lifestyle through the very process of engaging in the making of the video. the video also can be used as a teaching tool. the video can achieve widespread access to the total population at such time as it may be incorporated into a completed video production. My contextual essay provides pre-program and post-program data and the participants' reactions to their experiences at the program. Individual consultations, daily monitored exercise, controlled meals and group feedback sessions (in vivo and simulated practice) and relaxation exercises augmented a series of educational lectures. It also describes the process of making the video and contains a commentary on the video. At the end of the 2-week program all participants had measurably improved, with lower weight, blood pressure, cholesterol, LDL, triglyceride and body measurements levels, and sound attitudes about health and quality of life. Accordingly, the contextual essay is a monograph for a health and wellness program, which can be replicated by others.

📒A Life Worth Dying For ✍ Jim Andrews
📝A Life Worth Dying For Book Synopsis : This is a book for those disciples of Jesus Christ who by hardwiring are scandalized by mediocrity and always feel this inner imperative to transcend the ordinary. In their souls is a holy rumbling of a divine discontent. Yet in that temperament is a high risk of a bunny trail that can throw the believer seriously off the scent of true Christian excellence. Far from running out in the race of life and proving that we little Davids can run with the world’s Goliaths, the radical meaning of Christian excellence, it is argued, is altogether different. In this informal philosophy of Christian excellence the true target of achievement turns out to be not so much excelling at all the things we do (in the conventional sense) but drawing a bead on what we are called to be in Christ. So, for us Christians, pursuing excellence is not really about piling up accolades for our various skills and talents, harvesting trophies and pinning up ribbons and earning plaques to celebrate our achievements. Rather, it is (by the grace of God) exerting ourselves to live in radical conformity to Christ. Its pursuit comes down to an all-out assault on the peak of our potential in Christ . . .an all-out effort (by grace) to be all we are called to be, to do all that we are called to do and to go wherever God has called us to go. The beauty of it is that this noblest target lies totally within reach of the earnest, but under-endowed believer. Unlike the secular vision, the Christian vision of excellence is not elitist, but blessedly egalitarian. In the only way that really matters, the most ordinary Christian can take the prize. No one is excluded by the accidents of birth or circumstances, only by lack of vision and holy effort. . That, the author contends, is the only life worth dying for. He not only defines the target in clear terms, but points the way in practical terms to the ascent.

📒God S Holy Word ✍ Ellen Gould Harmon White
📝God s Holy Word Book Synopsis : Champions for Truth Researchers say at least 10,000 different religions exist around the world. Just one of those¿Christianity¿is divided further into 34,000 different denominations. Talk about hodge-podge! Talk about confusion! The Bible speaks of only one God and one church. So why do the world¿s nearly seven billion people worship thousands of gods in tens of thousands of churches? One great effort of God¿s great enemy is to sow never-ending division and confusion. The Devil masterfully counterfeits truth, compromises it with error, and if necessary, frightens God¿s followers into abandoning their beliefs to save their earthly lives. During what we call the Dark Ages, the enemy used counterfeiting, compromising, and frightening tactics to create a whole false system of religion that hardly resembled Christ¿s original church. The Bible was either abandoned or locked up so no one could read it. Paganism, atheism, and politics were mixed with truth until mostly error was left. But God always had His faithful people: the Waldenses, the Albigenses, the Huguenots. These and other followers stood firm on God¿s Word. Then the events of the great Protestant Reformation occurred. Bold men of God such as Wycliffe, Hus, Jerome, Luther, and others stripped away layers of falsehoods and exposed God¿s truth again. Once again, though, we live in a godless time with the Bible under attack. God needs you¿He needs all of us¿to champion His truth. He needs His people once again to stand on the Bible¿and nothing else!
